Here is another post of links I’ve found interesting over the past couple of weeks and a bit of general news. First, Neth Space is moving – at least the physical address is. Later this month I’ll be leaving the heat of Phoenix for the cool mountain air of Flagstaff – I can’t wait! So, my mailing address is changing – I’ve contacted most of those who send me books and such through email, but if this is news to you, send me an email (use the link in the sidebar – it’s pretty much spam-proof). Speaking of email, that may have to change too since I’ll be switching providers, but again, contact me and I can get you another email address that won’t be changing.
In another bit of news, Neth Space passed the 50,000 visits according to Site Meter – sure this is small potatoes for many of you out there, but to me, it’s something of milestone. Of course I don’t trust Site Meter all that much since I know it misses some visits and doesn’t account for RSS feeds, but it is a number I can point to. Thanks to all you new and repeat visitors – it does an ego good ;).
So, on to the links…
- I’m getting tired of all the posts about how to write reviews. Thankfully I’ve chosen to ignore most of them, but it seems Larry gets around.
- Another new interview with Scott Bakker – I’m more and more excited to read Neuropath. Hopefully my copy will arrive soon and Scott will get back to me with his Questions Five.
- Tobias Buckell takes a look at how Tor’s free e-book program has influenced his sales.
- John Scalzi lets fans know how to approach him – hint, it’s not from behind in the conservatory with a candlestick.
- Good things happen on (rare) occasion in the Arizona legislature.
- Landslide closes a major highway in Arizona – don’t get me started on the many ways ADOT screwed this one up.
- I wrote a negative pseudo-review and got a lot of attention out of it – see how civil discussion quickly turns into a blatant example for why authors shouldn’t respond to reviews. I gave up on the discussion because it got to the point that the things I want to say about it don’t forward the discussion (yes, this is political-speak and something of a gross understatement).
- I spent April Fool’s Day working in Bagdad – no, the other Bagdad.
